    Hello,

    There's an outside email address that, when they send email to my server, exim blocks with this message:

    Flipping through exim.conf I see where this error message pops up at:

    So what I would like to do is allow their ip, 216.239.76.134, to bypass this particular check. But I'm completely at a loss on how I would accomplish this (I also do not have the Exim config editor installed for WHM). Does anybody have any advice? I'm hoping there's a one-liner command I need to put in or some file to edit, but exim is awfully mysterious to me.

    Thanks in advance!

    In Exim configuration editor you can whitelist "A comma or colon seperated list of ip addresses that should not be rbl checked (whitelist)."

    Ahh, I think that'll do it, thank you. I hadn't even seen the Exim config editor in WHM before... well, that shows me! Thanks again!

    does this whitelisting works for the callout verification too ?

    or only for RBL listed senders?
